ticalc.org Update
Posted by Ryan on 28 August 2014, 20:44 GMT

A quick update from the ticalc.org staff:

We appreciate everyone's patience as we've been hunting down the source of the site's lag issues. Resident cogitator Magnus "Mad Dog" Hagander appears to have managed to track down the primary source of the problem, blast it to bits, squash it to smithereens, and pummel it into pieces. Thanks, Magnus! If you are still experiencing issues, please let us know via e-mail or IRC.

P.S. -- If you've got a better nickname for Magnus than "Mad Dog", let's hear it.

Travis removed the 120-day verification scheme a few weeks ago.

A year ago, actually. ;-) Though we never publicly announced it.

Nice it's much faster now. A lot of the people affected seemed to live on East Coast or Eastern Canada (such as Québec) and the problem had been around for over two months. I assumed it was something between us and the server since many people could access ticalc.org fine.

Actually, it was more related to what operating system you were using than your exact location. But the further away from Europe (Germany in particular) the easier it appears to have been to trigger the problem.

But so far, I think all users of Linux had no problems at all for example :) At least I haven't heard a report about it.

Did not have a problem on my Mac (maybe because of the Unix roots :P) either but I'm situated in Europe, so ..

Actually not a bad idea blocking windows computers because they pose a security risk. After all, the small majority of people that still use windows easily upgrade to Linux.

Trolling aside, interesting problem ^^

False. They use TI-Nspire OS.

The only issue since the fix is that I now have to login everytime I visit ticalc.org since the site no longer remembers my login.

Maybe you lost your preferences cookie. Did you try the Your Account > “Reload preferences cookie” thing, or check Preferences and see if the Remember option is still set?

Ok I will try this now. I know the checkbox was still checked but I did not try reload preference cookies. I'll let you know later if it makes me login again.
